Rochester, NY – Late last week, Rochester City Council passed legislation that will turn a part of Monroe Avenue into one giant crosswalk.
“We decided that it is time this city fully embraces human beings walking directly into oncoming traffic without a second thought.” One council member told the Blog.
The portion of Monroe Ave between 490 and Howell Street will now be designated as one giant crosswalk
Advocates of the bill celebrated its passing by covering their eyes and running back and forth across the street in front of City Hall.
“This is a huge victory for jaywalkers everywhere,” an activist told the Blog. “It is our right as American citizens to drunkenly stumble across Monroe Ave without looking both ways.”
